ABSTRACT
Most smokers who give up smoking relapse. There is a simple procedure that has been used successfully that prevents relapse. It has been used clinically for many years. When not smoking, we do not experience the feel, the taste, or the smell of the cigarette. When we next experience any one of these, we tend to reexperience a strong wish to smoke. Each day for 1 month, buy your usual supply of cigarettes. Whenever you want to smoke, light a cigarette and put it out immediately. You may take another one whenever you want, including right away. After a month you will be free of smoking, and you will not relapse. The procedure is simple and cheap and does not require a therapist. It has been used without medication.
